Instructor Training Certification (ITC) is a 5-day course that prepares emergency responders to deliver lectures and hands-on training in their local jurisdictions. The course is conducted in two phases: fundamental principles and applied principle. During the fundamental principles phase participants receive an overview of adult learning, task analysis, risk and hazard analysis, learning objectives and lesson plans, communication skills, instructional delivery and multimedia, testing and evaluations, and after action reviews. Then, during the applied principles phase, participants put these lessons into practice through a series of practice training sessions.
Below are some, but not all, of the critical skill sets learned during this training program:
- Developing and delivering instruction using multiple teaching and delivery strategies.
- Identifying learning resources applicable to a responder/receiver training environment.
- Assessing student needs and managing the learning environment.
Course Prerequisites and Requirements
ITC is designed for emergency responders who have not attended a qualified instructor training certification course and who will provide CBRNE training in their jurisdictions. To be eligible to attend ITC, a candidate must have successfully completed a CBRNE-training course conducted by the CDP or any other National Domestic Preparedness Consortium (NDPC) member.
